The challenge of constructing a facility to accommodate one hundred Girl Scouts with only volunteer help and limited funds netted a result that exceeded expectations. And now, with it being restored, it is not only poised to serve the Girl Scouts and Anne Arundel County Public School System for years to come, but will be included in the National Registry of Historic Places.

As a result of a recent grant survey conducted by the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation of the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at the University of Maryland, studied of the Modern Movement in Maryland (MoMoMa), 1930 thru 1970, the Lamb Lodge was submitted to the Registry. Included in their remarks were:

“The Girl Scout Lodge is nationally significant for the quality of its architecture, for being the first nationally recognized and awarded work of the master firm, and because of its unique embodiment of the social history and philosophy of the Girl Scouts of America.”


“In the course of our research, we have travelled the length and breadth of the state and we can say authoritatively that the Girl Scout Lodge is among the very highest quality and most interesting examples of modern architecture in Maryland.”
